Gina Maria Buckney, Embrace Equity Speaker, paints a picture for this year’s International Women’s Day 2023,
“Imagine a world where all genders were equal. A world where women were paid the same as their male counterparts. A world where a women feels safe to embrace her femininity at work. A world where women can dress how they like without being judged. Workplaces free of stereotypes, bias, and discrimination. A world where women have equal opportunities to progress to the top – a world where difference is celebrated. A world where difference is valued. Together we can make a change. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.”
What is International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day is a worldwide holiday celebrated each year. The annual event is a time to celebrate all the incredible things women have achieved. It allows women’s a space to celebrate and share with each other how women can influence the world. As well as applauding brilliant females, it’s also used as a day to highlight and raise awareness about issues that women have faced in the past and still face today, and provides a focal point in the movement of women’s rights, bringing attention to gender quality and issues such as abuse against women, violence, and reproductive rights.
Historically, women have been denied the right to vote, work, and many other things. Because of the brilliant women who fought against these things, women now have much more say in the world around us. But there are still many issues that women continue to face and fight for today.
“It’s a time to celebrate women’s achievements. A time to raise awareness about the discrimination that still exists today. A time to take action to continue the great strides already made to close the gap.” Gina Maria Buckney, International Women’s Day Embrace Equity Speaker.
International Women’s Day is an important day for us to focus on the many inequalities, gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping that exists in society today. Is your employer doing enough to support you on this special day? Have you booked your Embrace Equity Speaker?
